and the government can be prohibitive at times. well we have done is we try to focus our investments on technology. technology makes sense -- may be expensive but if you look at the total cost, it significantly reduces the overall cost. if you have an $80,000 cancer drug regimen that only works in 25% of patients, if we want a $100,000 test to take the 80% that cannot receive benefits, not only do we spare the patient the side effects, we save health care about the cost. the obama administration a few years ago used t o -- to quote data. about $25 billion had no impact on the patient. if we spent $3 billion in these test capabilities, you save health care costs. we are looking at these game changing technologies to improve the overall cost of health care. the beauty of these is it is the essence of personalized medicine. if we can more effectively take your dna and identify the nuances of your specific disease, which cannot practice trial and error madison -- medicine. it is hundreds of billions of dollars wasted on trial and error madison. more specific approaches treating disease at the individu
knew more about libya than anybody else in our government did not see a direct threat of an attack of this nature and scale despite the overall trend of security problems that we faced. and i have to add, neither did the intelligence community. the arb makes that very clear. that the intelligence community also did not really zero in on the connection between the deteriorating threat environment in eastern libya and in benghazi. and a direct threat on our compound. so we have work to do. we have work to do inside the department. we have work to do with our partners and the d.o.d. and the intelligence community to constantly be taking in information, making sure it does get to the right people, that it isn't somehow stove piped or stalled. but that it does rise to decision makers. and i'm committed to improving every way that i can on what the arb told us to do on assessing our intelligence. and i think it's fair to say, congressman, that we have to do this now because i predict we're going to be as we saw in algeria seeing all kinds of asymmetric threats. not just to our government
to the government can become prohibitive at times. so at life technologies what we've done is we try to focus our investments on technology that while the technology itself may be expensive, if you look holistically at the total cost of that patient event, it's significantly reducing the overall cost. let me tell you what i mean by that. if you have an $80,000 cancer drug regiment that only works in 25 percent of the patients, if we run a thousand dollar test and pick the 80% that don't receive benefit from that drug, not only do we spare the patient the side effects, we save health care a tremendous amount of cost. the administration, the obama administration a few years ago when we were in the throes of trying to figure out what we were going to do about health care, they used to quote some data, that $70 billion in 2008 was spent on oncology drugs and somewhere between 20 and 25 billion had no impact on the patient. so if we were to spend three billion in these amazing test capabilities to pick the 25 billion that wasn't going to respond, you save the overall health care costs. so we really ar

the u.s. should be governed and should govern itself. i would almost characterize it as something along the lines of a response to what we heard from president reagan in 1981 when he said government is not the solution to our problems, it is the problem. president obama making the case that the government is not necessarily our problem. together we could do great things. together we could take care of the elderly. together we can create a health care system for those who may not be able to afford it. very much discussing ways about how there should be some in society you don't have all or should not be some in society you have all at the expense of all others. he made and not to climate change, something that he had not necessarily highlighted or focused on in his first demonstration. moving forward in tackling debt and deficits, he did talk about tax reform. talk about slowing the growth of these expenses, but still no change in his governing philosophy, if not impassioned defense of his governing philosophy. we have heard from democrats and republicans not throughout the day calling f
people i work for are even more tired of it than i am. a divided government is a good opportunity to make tough choices. the president will never have more political capital than he has right now. let's take those two things together. let's see what that formula would produce. divided government. republicans and democrats both have to take responsibility. a president with maximum political capital could equal a good and long-term result. i hope that the president and the majority in the senate will get serious about working together and solve the problems that we face as a county. i look forward to being part of that and i am appreciative that the house of representatives has passed legislation that appears to have forced the senate to do its job on a budget for the first time in four years. and, madam president, i'd ask unanimous consent that the period of morning business now be extended until 12:30 today and that all provisions of the previous order remain in effect. the presiding officer: is there objection? without objection. the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: mr. bro

and it needs to be part of the strategy that make sure as we support alternative governments and the rebels that there is a strong priority in protecting the source of these weapons not ending up harming americans or harming our interests. >> well, senator, you're absolutely right. one of the reasons that we and other government agencies is exactly that, we have a concerted effort to try to track down and find and recover as many man pads and other dangerous weapons as possible. libya was a wash in weapons before the revolution. obviously there were additional weapons introduced. but the vast, vast majority came out of gadhafi warehouses and as they were saying, liberated and then went on the black market. were seized by militias and seized by other groups and have made their way out of libya into other countries in the region. and have their made way to syria, we believe. it is a red line for this administration with respect to syria concerning the use of chemical weapons. syria as you probably know in addition to having the fourth largest army before this revolution, has a very significan

[laughter] a lot of people think that we need government policy to guide this stuff. to be fair to boone pickens, but he was arguing for was the federal mandate that commercial vehicles had to use gas and would provide subsidies to switch the engine over. that is not terribly different from what barack obama thinks about, with using solar batteries. happy dreams and unicorns stre. do we need guidance from the department of energy or any sort of federal policy? can the market take care of it on its own? >> it ought to be decided in the marketplace. a lot of this takes a long time. horizontal drilling took 20, 30 years. the time it takes to produce confirmations. it ought to be decided in the marketplace. everybody converting over too cheap, natural gas for their cars? the fact is that it is not always going to be cheap. once people start payi

side, c-4s and c-3s, the poor which need help from the government. but i notice the president -- he had a line in his speech where he said every job -- the nation needs to find a decent wage for every worker. really? you know, there is supply and demand. there is a new role for government, and it's a more active role. >> is that a role for government, or could that be read, that is the american dream, the promise of america, which is people who come from nothing in a generation can become something, which as you well know, very unusual in many other countries. america is the place where that story is possible, and elsewhere it's really not. >> that's right. and -- and i guess you could interpret it either way and that's the debate. that's the debate. will it be the role of government or supply and demand and the natural market. >> the raising of a president, the mother and fathers of our nation's leaders. thank you for joining us. >> let's get to john berman. >>> the testimony many americans have been waiting months to hear. secretary of state hillary clinton will testify about the atta
's "obsession with government bookkeeping a rigged game and a wrong game." that the party needed to focus on more things. do you think that was a repudiation of the paul ryan approach or the tea party approach that focuses on fiscal matters? >> no, i don't think it was at all. it was an honest stimtatement that when you talk in washington budget terms you're committing yourself to a lot of things that not only the public doesn't understand, but it's very misleading. in washington, it is a cut when spending goes up but just not as fast as was planned. for the average american family that is spending goes up more slowly. for the left, they say to the public they're cutting spending by trillions and trillions even though spending's going up to get in that jargon and to use that lingo, bobby jindal is exactly right, we need to make the truth obvious to voters. >> governor there's certainly a lot of soul-searching i think going on with the republican party and governor jindal's speech last night exemplified that. however you hear people like speaker boehner saying it's
. not even just those in government can tackle these big challenges. all americans have to be involved if we're going to move beyond what's paralyzed this town for so long and make some progress. >> he'll try to recapture the spirit of bipartisanship? >> he will and, look. i think it's a real challenge to everybody in this country, to lay aside their partisanship and try to make some real progress for the country. and, look charlie, it's not as if we're going to solve the really big issues or the really big div we can if we sit down long enough work together and talk together and make some progress on the issues we face. >> i heard from some of my sources the president finished his speech relatively early on saturday. exclusively they're writing at the very last minute of these inaugural addresses. what's different this year? >> i think he feels very comfortable with what he's got, very at ease with what he wants to say, and understands the moment he and the country are in, and is anxious to get started. >> let's talk about the second term because one of the
